I watched it awhile back, and I never could figure out why people thought it was so great. It's fine, and there are things I liked about it, but overall I was just uninterested/bored a lot. I get that people say it's a pretty accurate portrayal of real life in Baltimore, but maybe that was my problem. I don't want to watch TV/movies to see real life. I watch TV/movies to get away from real life.
